Your Song

Eb  Ab/Eb  Bb/Eb  Ab/Eb

Eb               Abmaj7  Bb/D           Gm
It's a little bit funny  this feeling inside
Cm             Cm/Bb         Am7b5   Ab
I'm not one of those who can   easily hide
Eb/Bb             Bb      G/B       Cm
I don't have much money but boy if I did
Eb           Fm7           Ab           Bb    Bbsus   Bb
I'd buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
Eb            Fm7      Ab             Eb  Ab/Eb  Eb
My gift is my song and this one's for you

Bb/D            Cm        Fm7          Ab
And you can tell everybody this is your song
Bb/D      Cm               Fm7          Ab
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
Cm
I hope you don't mind
Cm/Bb                 Am7b5              Ab6
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
Eb/G         Ab6            Ab               Bb  Bbsus  Bb
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

Eb   Ab/Eb   Bb/Eb  Ab/Eb

I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross
But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song
It's for people like you that keep it turned on

So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen

is this for a piano or guitar

I transcribed it on piano. It can be played on the guitar in this key, however you may want to transpose it and use a capo to make it easier. I don’t have any auto-transpose features available at this time.

I played it on the guitar with the capo on the first fret and then play it as you were playing in the key of D (which is acutally Eb with the capo) and it sounded great. You can do the nice intro by playing the open D string (Eb) repeatedly while moving the inversion voicings up and then back down the neck of the guitar. Awesome, classic song. Have fun!

I love the Bb with D in the bass. That is genius.
